I know that this shouldn't be done, but I'm very desperate. I'm 17, and about six months ago, I started having severe pain in my upper right stomach, underneath my ribcage. It always radiates to my back, which follows along with severe heart burn. It's the most painful experience I've hever had. It only ever happens when I lay down, and never after I eat. Infact, I haven't even been eating the past six months, only when I have too, at family gatherings, and even then I don't eat much.

Usually when I have an attack, I vomit thirty minutes in from pain, my sister is a nurse, and she said the only reason I'm vommiting is because I'm going into shock. So far, in the past six months, I've had an attack almost every second day, there was one time I didn't have one for a week, but that was it.

I hear all these stories about people have attacks three times a month, or even one time a month, and their pushed into emergency to get it removed.

But! I've had one, every second day, and sometimes I have more than one attack in a day, and it is STILL not enough to have a surgery soon, I have to wait another SIX MONTHS, to get ANYTHING done. I cried for an hour when they told me this. I cannot wait this long! I can't even walk down the street without feel that stupid gallbladder in me moving around and causing pain. Every time I get up, I feel it, it feels like it's bloated and it's pushing against my ribcage. It's infuriating. I WANT IT OUT. PLEASE, tell me how I can rupture it? Or ways I can try too? If the doctors wont do anything for me, then I'll do it myself.

Thank you.

  • You want to keep that gallbladder in as long as possible. Listen to your doctor they know best. They should of scanned the bladder to see if it's working. They throw you into a gallbladder fit then take tests. It's pretty reliable testing. I do anything to have my gallbladder back in at a normal one.
